The Sugary Beverages Levy
The Sugary Beverages Levy (SBL) is a new Health Promotion Levy in support of the Department of Health’s deliverables to decrease diabetes, obesity and other related diseases in South Africa. The levy is 2.1 cent per gram of the sugar content that exceeds 4 grams per 100ml. Due to this levy, all beverages manufactured by Nairsons after March 2018 will not exceed the 4 grams per 100ml RTD threshold so that you our valued customer can still enjoy our quality beverages at a reasonable price and avoid paying the exorbitant price had we not reformulated.
Our product labels will be updated in due cause to include the added Non-Nutritive Sweeteners in the Ingredient listing.
